"Education" is awfully general - and vague. Tried "lesson" "instructor" "professor" "instruction" "class" "learning" "dialogue" "teach" and "teacher" and NONE of those could be accepted?

maybe female for feminine, house for domestic, and gardens/flowers for botanical would also be good type-ins?

circopithican: of or relating to monkeys. For some reason I always remembered that from my Creative Writing teacher's dictionary of obscure words, though I don't think I've ever seen the word anywhere else including other dictionaries.

@Nyackjohn: "Learning" or "Teaching" would have worked.

@kalbahamut: "House" will work now.

I tried "girl" for Feminine. While it's good that most answers accept both singular and plural forms of the answer, the answers themselves are oddly inconsistent in that respect.

Almost all of your options seem off, like school or textbook would not be right either. Teach and learning are the only ones that sound good.

"Optic" should be about light. Eye just relates to the human body.

Please dont. Optic comes from sight/seeing and not a word to do with light... Optics with an s is a different word that can mean study of sight and behaviour of light. But the optic in that word still pertains to seeing.. The answer for light would probably something with lumen.

light being the answer for optic is as logical as speach being the answer to audio, yes you can hear it, but is not the origin of the word. And has nothing to do with the root.

It definately should not. Optic refers to sight or seeing. Just because light is something we see does not mean the word optic means that.

Edit: if it was opticS you would have a point, that is used to refer to the science of sight AND light. But the word optic literally comes from to see...

Had no idea what cutaneous meant, but I got the answer because "Cat" was accepted even though I typed "cats", then I started to type in "Kings" for royalty, and the rollover 's' from cats + the 'kin' from kings = skin. Nice side effect from accepting singular answers. Thanks!

When I first clicked one of these quizzes, I had no idea what to expect. "Words Pertaining to Things" is possibly the vaguest name you could give to indicate a quiz topic, apart from perhaps just "Stuff". Presumably all words pertain to things in one way or another.

I got all but pneumatic took me some thought, was trying stuff like closed pressurised system. I think i was gonna try simply air pressure next when air was accepted. Had never heard of the gusto one. First it reminded me of gastro, and then of gusto. I tried intestines (but apparently gastro only refers to the stomach) and taste and things like that.
